INTRODUCTION. 

1164508 

Dear Friends and Relatives : — 

Justice to myself and others has induced me to present 
this work in its unfinished state. The compilation has occupied a 
period of six years of labor, carried on through discouraging words 
from some, and with little, or long-delayed, aid from others. 
Surnames originated about 1500 a.d., and middle names were 
not universally used much previous to 1780. Men were named 
from their father, or from some peculiarity of person. If a man 
named John had a son Peter, he would be called Peter Johnson, 
his son would bear the name of Peterson. If he was deformed 
in any way, the name indicating his deformity would be used as 
a middle name, as Peter Hunchback Johnson. Our name is 
an ancient one, having originated in England. It may have 
been derived from Burler, a dresser of cloth, Burly, boisterous, 
or compounded from Bur, Burgh, elevated, and ley, meaning un- 
filled ground; viz. : high and untilled ground. Burgh also 
means a fortification, a castle, and ley, leigh, means a field, viz. : 
a castle on the field, or defence of the lowly. The variations 
in spelling the name have been Burleigh, Borleigh, Burghly, 
Burghley, Birgeley, Burley, Berley, Birley, Burlie, Burle, Burlly, 
Bourle, Burly, Budley, Burdley, Berdley, Birdley, Birdly, Bodley, 
Borley, Barley, Buries, Beareley, Brally, Bralley, Bowley, Burhely, 
and perhaps Burleson and Burlison. Burleigh is the more mod- 
ern, and I would suggest that it be continued, though Burley is 
the most common orthography in England to-day. 



4 INTRODUCTION, 

Camden, the genealogist, says no man whomsoever is to be 
disliked in respect either of original, or of signification, for nei- 
ther the good names do grace the bad, neither do evil names 
disgrace the good. In all countries, both good and bad have 
been of the same surnames, which, as they participate one with 
the other in glory, so sometimes in shame. Time has inter- 
mingled and confused all, and we are all come to this present by 
successive variable descents from the high and low, or more 
plainly, the low are descended from the high, and contrawise 
the high from the low. The effect of a great ancestry may be 
traced into the remotest generation. Statesmen, generals, intel- 
lectual men altogether, are found to have ancestors like them 
near, or far ; and the more perfect the mating of these with the 
daughters, the more perfect will be the race. In fact, every- 
thing we possess is inherited from the past, and the study of 
the past is necessary if we would prepare for the future. Its 
lessons can never be neglected without exposing us to danger in 
the future. Wherever the memory of good deeds is perpetuated 
it has a tendency to produce good men. I have decided to limit 
my endeavor to the American portion of the family, claiming 
nothing as original, and hoping that those who see mistakes 
will not hesitate to make corrections. For if time and circum- 
stances permit it, I shall undertake the revision of the work, 
and include the English families. Those who have written, or 
attempted to write, genealogies, know what uphill work it is. 
Dry statements are sent in by contributors, unenlivened from 
their monotony of dead figures referring to births, marriages, and 
deaths, by a single anecdote or historical sketch of any peculiar- 
ity in any portion of the family, which might lead to its fuller 
recognition by others. Many persons are frightened by the 
name genealogy, supposing from hearsay that it must be fruitless 
and uninteresting. Those who have studied it know its value. 
May this one be an incentive to a renewed activity among others 
of the family to "gather them in" even from the ends of the 
world, and complete a work which will make our name live for 
generations to come. May our children, and our children's 



INTRODUCTION. S 

children, adhere to the virtues of their ancestors, and each see 
that the world is no worse for their having lived in it. If, as the 
result of my labor, any are led to feel a deeper interest in the 
work, I shall be amply repaid. I am under special obligations 
to Hon, John Wentworth, of Chicago, for material relating to 
the Sandwich families ; to Rev. J. Chapman, of Exeter, for 
valuable assistance. For the material of the Sanbornton fam- 
ilies, I am indebted to Rev. M. T. Runnals for the kindly loan 
of his advance sheets of the history of that town, which he 
is soon to publish. Hoping my efforts have not been in vain, 
with charity for all and malice toward none, I dedicate this work 
to the coming generation. Charles Burleigh. 



EXPLANATIONS. 

The small numbers following the name denote the generation, 
other numbers following denote the consecutive number of a 
person, which may be found by referring back. In the female 
lines the numbering and style of type will show the descent, 
thus: bold-face, parents; small capitals, children; italic^ 
grand-children. Abt. means about ; b., born ; bapt., baptized ; 
ch., children; d., died; m., married; n.m., not married; prob., 
probably or probate. No further explanations are needed, as 
the other abbreviations will be readily understood.

down country the first two years for means of subsistence, at one 
time bringing corn meal home on his back from Deerfield, a dis- 
tance of forty miles. The cows in the meantime ran in the 
woods, and hay was gathered from the meadow below for their 
winter keeping. He signed the association test in 1776, and 
was a highway surveyor in town as late as 1795. His descend-

Lydia Austin of Charlestown. He took an active part in the war 
of the revolution, and was for many years an officer in the Amer- 
ican army. On 3 Feb. 1 780, when under command of Col. Thomp- 
son, on the lines near White Plains, N. Y., he being then a lieu- 
tenant, was taken prisoner in a severe skirmish with the British 
troops. He was compelled to remain a prisoner for a year and 
nine months on his parole on Long Island, when he obtained 
his liberty by exchange. This long captivity at such a crisis was 
a severe trial to one of his active character and ardent patriot- 
ism. The last year of his captivity he was allowed the pay and 
rations of a captain in the continental army. He left a legacy 
to the town of Beverly and a similar one to his native place 
Ipswich. 7 April 1823, as Wm. Burley of Beverly, deceased, a 
native of Ipswich, has left by his will ;^5o of his estate, which 
should be paid annually for ten years, for instruction of poor 
children in reading and the principles of the christian religion, 
the inhabitants pass a vote expressive of their respect to his 
memory. (Felts' History of Ipswich.)

Emily Ann, dau. of Jonathan and Nancy (Marshall) Colcord, 
she b. 28 Mar. 1809. He was one of New Hampshire's won- 
derful men, who struggled to some eminence by indefatigable 
perseverance. In 181 1 by the marriage of his sister he was left 
alone with his parents, who had barely enough income for their 
support. The mother was bent on giving the child of her old 
age an education, and a profession. She was not disappointed ; 
by incessant labor, study, and teaching he prepared himself for 
college under Dudley Leavitt of Leavitt-almanac celebrity. 
About four weeks previous to the commencement of the term 
in which he was to begin his studies, he obtained a latin gram- 
mar and set himself at work to commit it to memory while lab- 
oring in the field. In the three weeks he had committed the 
entire grammar as far as prosody. On the first day of the term 
he was called upon to recite, the teacher standing, as was his 
custom. The pupil kept on until the master hearing him for 
forty-five minutes asked him how far he proposed to recite. 
" To prosody, sir," was the ready reply. " Well ! well ! " he 
replied, " I will hear the rest some other time." This untiring 
study until eleven at night, without recreation and exercise, to 
which he had been accustomed, shattered his health and de- 
prived him of a college education, but not of a profession, to 
which he gave close application for five years, and was admitted 
to the York County Bar. He was soon able to manage the 
business while his brother was in Congress. In 1832 he re- 
moved to Great Falls, N. H., to add the business of Strafford 
county. His success attracted the attention of the Great Falls 
Manufacturing Co., and after being retained in many flowage 
cases, he was persuaded to accept the agency of that corpora-

tion. This he did very un\villinj;ly, for he was very fond of the 
hiw, but his health demanded the change. His successful career 
in tliis agency was very gratifying. He continued in this con- 
nection from 1838 to i860, although for four years he was totally 
blind, his memory enabling him to put his hand on any paper 
needed, and give details of business, visit places of business 
connected with his agency, procure statistics, dates, prices of 
labor, etc., all day, and keep his wife writing from his dictation 
all the evening without hesitation, even to dates and figures.

fill important offices in the town. He was chosen captain of 
the militia, and called into sendee in the war of 1812, marched 
with his company into Belfast at the time the British entered 
the Penobscot river to destroy the U. S. frigate Adams. He 
represented the town and the district in the legislatures of Mass- 
achusetts and Maine, and by appointment and election filled 
other offices of trust. Was a delegate to attend the convention 
held on the last Monday of September 1816, at the meeting- 
house near the college in Brunswick in the District of Maine, to 
form a state constitution in anticipation of a separation from 
the Commonwealth of Massachusetts ; was commissioned cap- 
tain of 4th Regt., 2d Brigade, nth Div., in 1814, and promoted 
lieutenant colonel in 18 16. He carried the first mail by carriage 
from Augusta to Bangor, it having previously been carried on 
horseback. He removed to Linneus in the year 1830, and was 
appointed by the Marshal to take the census in the northern 
section of the county of Washington ; while in that service the 
provincial warden, alleging that he was in disputed territory in 
violation of the provincial law, pursued with authority to arrest 
him ; he eluded all pursuit and accomplished his work. In 183 1 
he was appointed assistant land agent to guard that section of 
the public lands, and in that capacity succeeded in breaking up 
various parties of trespassers, compelling them to return to the 
British Provinces. For several years he held the office of post- 
master at Linneus, and was a man of activity, energ}^, and pro- 
bity of character ; his hospitality was particularly marked, the 
hungry were fed and the weary found rest beneath his roof.

he continued two years. He then bought into the foundry 
business at Somersworth, N. H., had the business incorporated 
under the act of the legislature in 1849 under the name of the 
Somersworth Machine Co., and has been ever since in the man- 
agement of that corporation ; has been extensively engaged in 
building gas works in New England and the West. He has 
been nineteen years president of the Somersworth Savings 
Bank, and for a long time director in the Great Falls National 
Bank, and director in several manufacturing corporations. Kep- 
resented Somersworth in the legislature three sessions, and was 
a member of the state senate in 1857 and 1858. Received the 
degree of a.m. at Dartmouth college in 1872. He has kept up 
his interest in the sea all his life ; was a ship-owner through the 
war, and is at present owner in several large ships engaged in 
the East India trade. His ch., (711) William,^ b. 19 Sept.

724 Hon. John Holmes,^ b. 7 Oct. 1822, d. 5 Dec. 1878, 
m. 28 Oct. 1859 Matilda Buffum of No. Berwick, Me. He re- 
ceived an academic education, but by necessity was compelled 
to go to sea at the age of sixteen. He rose from the lowest 
service to be master of a ship in the foreign trade, and by seven 
years of successful voyages accumulated a competency. In 
1853 he left the sea, and after spending two years in Great 
Falls removed to So. Berwick, Me., and became the leading 
proprietor of the Newichawanich woolen mills, investing all he 
was worth, about $15,000. By his energy and business tact the 
enterprise prospered, and in i860 the company out of their 
earnings were able to build some new mills, which they now 
occupy. Their product was about $300,000 a year, one half of 
which he sold himself directly to the trade, and the company 
early acquired a reputation for sound and durable work. The 
village of South Berwick and its industries owe more to his 
energy, capacity and public spirit than all other influences. He 
was president of both the national and savings banks. From 
being a Whig he became a Republican, and such was his popu- 
larity in his native town thiat he served a Democratic district in

the State legislature in 1862, '64, '66 and '72, He was chosen 
delegate at large to attend the national convention which met at 
Baltimore and nominated Lincoln and Johnson. In 1872 he 
was elected to the 43d Congress and re-elected in 1874. He 
served on the naval committee during both terms, and was 
instrumental in perfecting the management of the Kittery Navy 
Yard. He was an upright, honorable man in all his business 
relations, and a worthy representative of that class of men 
whose industry, enterprise and public spirit have built up the 
prosperous villages of New England. He was a passable man, 
somewhat under six feet in height, with a round, deep chest, a 
square head set on broad shoulders, iron gray beard, thick white 
hair, dark eyes with a remarkable pleasant expression, a clear 
complexion and every indication of health and abounding vigor. 
In his native town he had no enemies and his word was as good 
as his bond. He was instantly killed by his horse sheering on 
the bridge between So. Berwick and Salmon Falls, precipitating 
him twenty feet on the rocks below. His ch., (725) Charles

graduated at Dartmouth College with honors in 185 1, studied 
law with Wells & Bell, and was admitted to the Strafford 
Bar in 1854, becoming a partner of Nathaniel Wells, esq., 
of Great Falls, and buying the interest of Hon. Charles 
H. Bell, now of Exeter. He gave promise of rare suc- 
cess in his profession, and it was a source of regret to his 
friends when he gave up the practice and accepted the agency 
of the Great Falls Manufacturing Co. upon the death of his 
father in i860. Ke had previously acted as agent while his 
father was' traveling in Europe for his health, and during the 
last days of that gentleman when he was totally blind. He left 
a record of energy, fidelity and spotless integrity as a business 
man. He quickly won the respect and love of those whom he 
employed, and they came by hundreds to look on his face in 
death, and to follow him weeping to the grave. He left the 
impress of his active intellect and tireless industry upon the 
various buildings whose construction he assisted in superintend- 
ing, and in many improvements around town. In 1863 and 
1864 he was a representative to the legislature; in 1865 and 
1866 a state senator. He was a member of the New Hampshire 
Historical Society and a trustee of Dartmouth College, for 
which institution he bore a filial regard which he amply and 
often testified. For several years he maintained a lectureship 
at his own expense which brought the students in contact with 
the learned mind of the historian Dr. John Lord. In 1868 he 
was appointed a member of the board of visitors to the United 
States Military Academy at West Point, a position which afford- 
ed him the keenest pleasure, and by which he became an hon- 
ored and valued friend of the officers of the institution, which 
acquaintance was continued up to his death. He "was a director 
in the Great Falls National Bank, a trustee of the Somersworth 
Savings Bank, and a director of several railroads and corpora- 
tions. In 1874 he retired from the management of the manu- 
facturing company and resumed the legal profession. He was 
soon reckoned one of the ablest lawyers in the state, and a 
brilliant ornament of the New Hampshire bar. His career was

characterized in the resolutions offered by the Bar Association 
in memory of his death, as "by his signal ability, varied acquire- 
ments, incomparable integrity, generosity and faithfulness, ren- 
dered already eminently successful, but which gave promise of 
higher honors to him, a still more brilliant adornment of the 
profession, and a future distinguished usefulness to the com- 
munity." His private life was characterized by generous, almost 
lavish charities ; by a love of the beautiful which adorned his 
home with all that ministered to such taste, and a love of hospi- 
tality which cheerfully welcomed his friends ; his versatile pen, 
his fascinating conversational powers, his mind which elsewhere 
has been called "a vast storehouse of learning," his great 
heart so tender to his family, so true to his friends, endeared 
him to all who knew him intimately. He was prostrated by 
apoplexy and paralysis for two months and died peacefully, 
having borne his intense suffering with heroic fortitude, sup- 
ported by a firm and almost childlike faith in his Redeemer.

hand in a neighboring village, then found employment with 
John Gove, the clothier, as a clerk ; he next opened a rope-walk 
at Salem, joined the M. E. church and was instrumental in 
building the church which now stands. In 1854 he went to 
Lewiston and opened a clothing store, his former employer 
giving him credit for his stock without security. He was soon 
able to clear up his indebtedness, and received John H. L. Cobb 
and John Y. Scruton in as partners under the firm name of 
Burleigh, Cobb and Scruton. After a year's business sold out 
his interest, was ordained a minister of the M. E. church and 
was stationed at Pownal, Me. His voice failing he resigned his 
charge and opened a flour and grain store at Lewiston. This 
not proving successful he went to Portland, Me., and again 
entered the clothing business and in three years gained a com- 
petency. In 1864 he went to Loda, subsequently to Cairo, 111., 
and was largely interested in grain speculations. At the close 
of the war he was appointed a government inspector of cotton 
in Texas, leaving his family at Loda. In 1866 returned to 
Portland with his family, and was a traveling salesman for a 
wholesale clothing house in Boston. In 1867 he moved to 
Cliftondale, Mass., and was a real estate broker at Boston ; 
after two years he purchased a farm of three hundred and sixty 
acres at Holliston, Mass. In 1870 he returned to Portland and 
has since been engaged in the clothing business, at one time 
having the largest retail establishment in Maine. Mr. Burleigh 
is a powerfully built man, standing over six feet in his stockings, 
and weighs two hundred and twenty-five pounds, he has blue 
eyes, hair and full beard of gray, and an iron constitution.

medical school at Hanover, and soon after placed himself under 
the private instruction of the late distinguished physician and 
surgeon, Dr, Edmund R. Peaslee, and through his advice became 
a member of the University Medical college in New York city, 
devoting himself especially to anatomy and surgery ; thence he 
went into the medical department of Bowdoin college, where he 
was for a time demonstrator of anatomy, and from which he 
graduated, receiving his degree of m.d. He had already receiv- 
ed from Dartmouth college the degree of a.b. and a.m. ; he then 
went, as one of the assistant physicians in the lunatic asylum, 
on Blackwell's island, New York. Before starting in the more 
active life of a physician, he decided to add to the superior in- 
struction in surgery that he had received, by going into a school 
of surgery in Paris, France, and on his return to America, after 
ten years study, began the practice of his profession in Law- 
rence, Mass. He bequeathed his choice medical library to the 
medical department of Dartmouth college. Reticent in speech, 
quiet in manner, no words were needed to tell that he was a 
man of large heart, of cool judgment, and keen perceptions ;

JOHN BURLEIGH GUILD. 

The following acrostic to the memory of Rev. John Burleigh 



132 BURLEIGH GENEALOGIES. 

Guild, a former pastor at Packerville, was prepared for the semi- 
centennial of that place. 

Jehovah's servant, honest, true and just, 
On all occasions faithful to his trust ; 
He never faltered when he saw the light, 
Nor shut his eyes to hide the claims of Right. 

Bravely he bore him in his Master's cause, 
Unchecked by flattery, or unrighteous laws, 
Regardless still alike of praise or blame, 
Linked to the true he ever stood the same. 

Each day he sought that one day's work to do, 
In all things keeping Jesus Christ in view ; 
Glad to endure and bear for his dear love, 
He nobly wrought below, and rests above. 

Grandly he lived his fellowmen among. 

Untrammelled still, till death his hand and tongue ; 

In lines unfading would our love record 

Least deeds or acts of his, or slightest word. 

Drawn forth in honor of his risen Lord. L. B.

1853. He lost an arm while in his youth and determined to ob- 
tain a liberal education ; by dint of difificult and persevering ex- 
ertion he succeeded almost unaided in fitting himself to enter 
college. He graduated at Yale college and was one of the 
most successful of classicaHeachers. He acted successively as 
preceptor of the academies of Plainfield, Woodstock and Colches- 
ter and was widely known as an accurate scholar. For over 
forty-five years he was deacon of the Congregational church at 
Plainfield, he was also among the first to advocate the abolition 
of slavery and to help forward other social reforms. During the 
last sixteen years of his life he was afflicted with total blindness 
arising from excessive study, and passed his last days on his 
farm at Plainfield.

had few equals, his language was elegant, chaste and clear, and 
his logic irresistible, those who assented to his premises were 
swept on to his conclusions by a force of reasoning that seemed 
to rest on the rock of eternal truth. In the long anti-slavery 
contest no other speaker was so universally ready in every 
emergency, when driven to straits by the powerful or plaus- 
ible pleas of the apologist, or defenders of slavery all turned at 
once to him to batter down the castles of opposition and dispel

and his history is the history of abolition, of temperance, and of 
human progress, written in characters that cannot die ; it will 
exert an influence for good long after he and his co-workers 
have passed away. Those who knew him most intimately best 
knew his devotion to principle, his unswerving fidelity, his inex- 
haustible patience. He worked on his father's farm at Plain- 
field, went to the district school and almost as soon as he knew 
how to write beguiled his leisure hours in verse making. A vol- 
ume of his poems has been published, and the preface written 
by his wife gives a graphic sketch of the man. In 1837 he re- 
moved to Pittsburgh, Pa., where he published the Christian Wit- 
ness and the Temperance Banner. In 1845 he went to Hart- 
ford, Conn., to take charge of the Christian Freeman, soon after 
known as the Charter Oak. In 1850 he went to Syracuse, N. 
Y., in the employ of the N. Y. Temperance Society where he re- 
mained five years as editor, lecturer, and corresponding secreta- 
ry; resided a short time in Albany. In 1855 he received the

Conn. He received his education mainly at the Plainfield acad- 
emy and the Conn. Literary Institution and commenced teach- 
ing at an early age, working on the farm summers until 1837 
when he became a christian and united with the Baptist church 
at No. Oxford, Mass., where he was then teaching. He after- 
ward removed his church relations to Packerville where he 
was ordained to the ministry as an evangelist. Was for a con- 
siderable time principal of the Elm Grove academy at Granby, 
Conn. In 1841 he entered the employment of a company in 
Hartford to travel and exhibit a painting of the Descent from 
the Cross and visited many of the towns and cities of New Eng- 
land. In 1845 while preaching occasionally he spent some 
months lecturing on temperance in eastern Conn., his efforts at- 
tracted so wide attention that he was invited to New Haven 
county to act as agent of the temperance society which he served 
with zeal and energy for several years, gathering many thousand 
names to the pledge. In 1849 ^^^ became the agent for the 
American association for the suppression of gambling and con- 
tinued to serve with fidelity and success till its suppression. 
He made a temperance tour through all the villages of West- 
chester county, N. Y., and the entire south-eastern portion of 
the state of Wisconsin, traveling 3.500 miles and filling seventy 
appointments to speak in thirty-six days. By the death of the 
teacher in his native village he was invited in 1854 to assume 
its duties and was soon made principal of the academy at Plain- 
field which he filled for five years with credit to himself and to 
the advantage of scores of pupils who passed under his instruc- 
tion. While teaching he was preaching two or three sermons 
each Sabbath in an adjacent parish ; after resigning his place in 
the academy he opened a select school of high standard and 
during these years of teaching he preached two and a half years 
at Westminster, enjoying an interesting revival, from here he 
was called to the Baptist church at Warrensville where the fruits

commend themselves to the family. 

IN memory of ella. 

The seasons of earth come and go 

Like a river's ceaseless flow. 
Forever here and forever there, 
Down from the hills of an unknown where, 

And away to the depths below ! 
In eternal flight and eternal rest, 
Like a baby swung on its mother's breast. 

Do the rivers of earth run dry, 

Or cease where they hurry by ? 
Do the secret springs forget to shed 
The coolest dews of their mountain bed,

Caught fresh from the nearer sky? 
They leap in the light down their valleys green, 
They return in light through the heavens, unseen. 

Ah me ! could we only know, 

When our loved ones come and go ! 
Soaring or sinking they rise and fall, 
Rocked on the breast of the Mother of all. 

Who carries and soothes them so. 
Should we fear when they pass, from our vision above, 
Borne in the arms of an Infinite Love .'' 

When they sink like a vanishing wave 

To the solemn deeps that gave, 
Though lost to sight of the straining eye, 
They hover like mist in our love's blue sky 

And mellow the sharp-lined grave ! 
The hot brow bared to their humid breath 
Is soothed till we could be in love with Death. 

My Darling ! I sit and so dream 

On the sway of the ocean stream 
Where floating but one swift year ago 
We were rocked by the same tide's ebb and flow, 

In the same sun's summer gleam ! 
But the restless swing of a deeper sea 
Has caught and borne thee afar from me ! 

I saw thee day by day 

Drifting and drifting away. 
Till the last gleam out of thy lifted eye 
Was the purple light of another sky. 

Flashed over our dusky ray ! 
Can we call thee lost, so rapt from our sight 
In the fathomless deeps of ineffable light ? 

Ah no ! We are dim and dark ; 

But thou as the morning lark 
Unseen for soaring in heaven canst rain 
Such melodies over our earthly pain 

That the dull sense whispers "Hark!" 
While the quickened soul is ravished above 
To know Death throws not a shadow on Love ! 

Thou, Ella, so lovely, so dear. 

So faithful and true in thy sphere, 
Worn out by an ardor of duty too strong 
For the frame it consumed as it bore thee along,

I will not believe thee less near 
Than when thy brown eyes shed laughter in mine, 
Or the pale lips of love gave their ultimate sign I 

For shall He not lead to their own 

All hearts, in our lives' either zone? 
Who clad the new Summer in green and gold. 
And led through the sky to their mountain fold 

The flocks of white billows, that down 
Ran as rill, brook and river with cataracts bound. 
Transfigured or veiled, never lost in their round ! 

Aye, the fingers that, dying, could trace 
Thy visions of beauty and grace, 
Shall weave us new garlands of asphodel now. 
To match the bright amaranth set on thy brow ! 

The lips thit breathed truth in their place. 
Shall sing the New Song with the eldest refrain. 
The Song of White Love everliving though slain !
